-Balancing image (producer oriented), content (educator), Teaching & Learning ( simulate discussion) –  where should educational video position?

: between content and T&L

This week:

-Developing a cricial eye

– learning through or learning about

– Context & Approach

– Educational video production pitch (CW 1)

Educational video

– focus on one specific theme/ message

– network tv shot : 3.5 second (1987)/ probably 2 second (now)

Hence,  one shot in educational video can be bored for the audience who get used to this trend

To make more interesting , it shouldn’t record just lecture

Different ways of using video in education

– Research : Micro teaching ( Book: Video research in the learning sciences)

-Event capture: lecture/seminar/ wedding (different

– Bespoke, Designed or Produced

– Student produced video

Activity: waching a video clip ( your guide to the library)

Finding a mistak

– shaking a camera: hard to notice but when you checked on a big screen, can see the small movement: using triple

– background noise: try to find a quiet time

– different sound level: listen to the voice level/ keep monitoring/ use microphone

– light:

– background music: inappropriate/ too dramatic/should match with image/ copyright / buy the music

– there is no information about the library: the purpose of video is hard to find from the clip

– transition: x too many special effects so please keep it simple ( just use 2 or 3 transition)

– fumbling narrative : rehearsal is important/ write a script”

Hence, bear in mind your viewer and rehearsal before taking a action (check camera shot)

– x dizzy / x overacting – think about somebody you like then action is change

* What would you like to change? start from entering library

Open & closed video

didactic / closed- instruction video

open-ended- discussion/ learning is stimulated and motivation purpose

depend on the subject or purpose, it can be decided


1. having an idea

2. Planning a making a video

* what is on your mind or comes up in your mind? bring  what it is on your mind

: making a story board – make a note or sketch

: the first sequence is very important and probably viewers decide to watch more or not/ watching a programme and what its first impression

Program supplement and teaching  ( book: teachers and machines)

should program  does work and stand alone/ teacher just switch on and off ?

pick up the most appropriate one!

picture – talk – video- talk ( engage more)

the web page- the user decide what they watch / never read text

programm- you decide the order and sequence

(schedule – 1 hr for 1 min for professor/ longer for students)

so designing feature is very important to save time ( leanring object/* learning stragegy – open or close/ mode of use)
